Tiltwood residents flock together for birdwatch

January 25th 2019

 

Residents at Tiltwood have their binoculars at the ready ahead of the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch. 

Preparations are underway, as Tiltwood gears up to take part in the world’s largest garden wildlife survey from Saturday 26th January until Monday 28th January.

Care UK residents prepare to find out more about birds as part of RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch

Residents will be taking part in a variety of activities related to our feathered friends and have invited local girl guiding group, Rainbows, to join them for the special occasion where they will be making bird feeders to attract more wildlife into the home’s garden. 

2019 marks the 40th anniversary of the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch, which encourages people nationwide to count the birds in their gardens to allow the charity to monitor trends and understand how different species are doing. Data from over half a million people is then compared year-on-year to provide a ‘snapshot’ of bird numbers across the UK.  

Home manager, Kristina Jacunskiene, explained why taking part in the Birdwatch is important for residents at Tiltwood: “The RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch is always a popular event here at Tiltwood and preparations are underway to ensure this year is another flying success. 

“Birdwatching is an accessible activity that people of all ages and abilities can enjoy together, whether its spending time in the garden topping up the bird feeders, or taking the sounds and sights in from the comfort of an armchair – no matter the weather it’s a great, inclusive activity for all! 

“The residents are particularly looking forward to this year’s event and welcoming the Rainbows to the home – fingers crossed lots of birdlife decide to pay us a visit!”
